This pattern was also observed among stateside Puerto Ricans as a whole and those in Puerto Rico.

A third (33.6%) of Puerto Ricans in Georgia worked in the higher wage management, business, science, and arts sector compared to 28.1 percent of Puerto Ricans in the U.S. and 31.3 percent in Puerto Rico. Proportionately, Puerto Rican women were more present than men in in the management, business, science, and arts sector. In Georgia, 35.6 percent of Puerto Rican women worked in this sector, compared to 31.9 percent of Puerto Rican men. In the United States these proportions were 33.1 percent and 23.4 percent respectively, and in Puerto Rico were 39.7 percent and 23.9 percent respectively. The second most common occupational sector was the sales and office occupations sector accounting for 30.7 percent of Puerto Rican employment in Georgia. Puerto Ricans actively serving in the Armed Forces accounted for 3.7 percent of Puerto Ricans in Georgia s labor force.

Puerto Ricans in Georgia also work in the government sector at a higher rate (17.3%) than Puerto Ricans across the country as a whole, though lower than in Puerto Rico (22.5%) The average earnings of full-time, year-round Puerto Rican men and women in Georgia, $56,304 and $40,374, demonstrated a higher disparity (nearly $16,000) than at Table 3.

5 Puerto Rican Population by Counties in Georgia, 2014 Most Puerto Ricans in Georgia (45.8%) were settled in the northwestern region of the state, particularly in the Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Roswell metropolitan area. The remaining 54.2 percent of the Puerto Rican population were dispersed throughout the state, yet there were small areas of concentration in the northeast (Whitfield County), parts of the east (Richmond, Liberty, Chatham Counties), and southwest (Muscogee County) regions of the state. The largest area of Puerto Rican settlement was found in the nine counties of Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Roswell metropolitan area: Gwinnett (15.6%), Cobb (8.5%), Fulton (7.3%), DeKalb (4.8%), Henry (3%), Clayton (2.6%), Coweta (1.6%), Douglas (1.2%), and Fayette (1%). The second largest Puerto Rican concentration outside of Atlanta metropolitan area was in Richmond County (Augusta City) and in Columbia County, and both areas accounted for 7.4 percent of the state s Puerto Rican population. Muscogee County (Columbus City) located in the southwest region and Chatham County (Savannah city) located in the southeast region of the state both accounted 7.8 percent of the Puerto Rican population. At least 30 miles west of Chatham County is another Puerto Rican community located in Liberty County, containing 3.4 percent of the population. Latinos as a whole showed a similarly settlement pattern in Georgia as Puerto Ricans, with nearly one-fifth (19.1%) of Latinos settled in Gwinnet County and the remainder distributed in lower concentration throughout the state. Puerto Rican presence was overrepresented in counties outside of the Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Roswell metropolitan area compared to the Latino population in Georgia. In all, Puerto Rican communities tend to reflect the location of U.S. military bases located throughout the state.

9 the national level of $50,756 and $42,623 (about $8,000) for Puerto Rican men and women, respectively. Although Puerto Rican men in Georgia earned almost six thousand dollars more than at the national level, Puerto Rican women in Georgia earned about two thousand dollars less than at the national level. Compared to Puerto Rico where average full-time, year-round Puerto Rican earnings were $32,512 and $29,166 for men and women, respectively, Puerto Ricans in Georgia and the U.S. as a whole earned more on average. Household and family incomes are important indicators of economic well-being. These indicators were higher for Puerto Ricans in Georgia than for stateside Puerto Ricans and those in Puerto Rico. The median income was $52,661 for Puerto Rican households in Georgia, more than ten thousand dollars higher than among all stateside Puerto Ricans ($39,322) and more than double the median income of Puerto Rican households in Puerto Rico ($18,710). Per capita incomes among Puerto Ricans in Georgia were higher ($20,552) than among all stateside Puerto Ricans ($18,457) and those in Puerto Rico ($10,960). Puerto Ricans in Georgia had $1.8 billion purchasing power. From an economic perspective, stateside Puerto Ricans represented 72.3 percent of the $134.5 billion total purchasing power of the entire Puerto Rican community in the year Purchasing power is defined simply as per capita income multiplied by the Puerto Rican population. Stateside Puerto Ricans had more than double the total purchasing power of Puerto Ricans in Puerto Rico of $37.3 billion. Table 4.

10 The poverty rate for all Puerto Rican families in Georgia (12%) was ten-percentage points lower than among all Puerto Rican families in the U.S. (22.7%) and those in Puerto Rico (42.8%). As seen in other states and in Puerto Rico, Puerto Rican households with a female householder, no husband, and children under 18 had the highest rates of poverty. In Georgia, 46.3 percent of these households reported living in poverty, compared to 49.7 percent across the U.S. and 69.7 percent in Puerto Rico. Regardless of context, these poverty rates are alarmingly high. Although Georgia had overall less Puerto Rican households in poverty, the proportional frequency of poverty in specific types of households mirrored that of other states. Public assistance income participation rates for Puerto Rican families in Georgia (2.7%) were less than half the national level (6.9%) and in Puerto Rico (8.1%). Although food stamp/snap (Supplementary Nutrition Assistance Program) participation among Puerto Rican families in Georgia was 17.3%, it was considerably below the national level (31.5%) and in Puerto Rico (39.7%). Housing is a primary determinant of the cost of living. The median value of owner-occupied housing for Puerto Ricans in Georgia was $155,000, lower than the median value of owner-occupied housing for all stateside Puerto Ricans ($175,900), but higher than in Puerto Rico ($119,500).

12 discrepancy in home values may be affected largely by the lower costs of living in Georgia. Puerto Ricans in the state are generally making more money and more likely to be employed in higher wage sectors than at the national level, and could presumably afford more expensive homes. The median monthly owner cost associated with a mortgage was $1,317 for Puerto Ricans in Georgia, $1,545 for those in the U.S., and $873 for those in Puerto Rico. Less than a quarter (23%) of Puerto Ricans in Georgia who owned a home paid more than 30 percent of their income in monthly owner costs. This rate was higher at the national (37.2%) level and in Puerto Rico (47.4%). Georgia had considerably higher rates of home ownership (48.6%) among Puerto Rican households when compared to the national level (36%). However, these rates was lower than in Puerto Rico (68.7%).
